  • ensure that our students become responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society
  • equip students with the skills (identified as Dixons skills) needed to participate in the technological, economic, social and cultural life of the country
  • ensure that students develop the essential skills for learning, life and employment by incorporating personal, learning and thinking and functional skills into their curriculum offer
  • encourage students to develop the skills needed for employment by including opportunities for business challenges and applied learning in real contexts
  • ensure students have high aspirations and self-esteem and accept responsibility for their learning

We do this by offering a curriculum that is personalised, which is broad, balanced and coherent.
